For those that don’t know, Ashita no Joe was the Hajime no Ippo of the 70s-80s. There was an anime adaption of it that I watched as a kid, and the manga has had some of it’s early chapters scanlated.
Let’s see how this movie comes out…

exciting news!


#5

Hmmm this should be good.


#6

Tomohisa isn’t a good choice for this role imo. He’s a good actor though in other stuff I’ve seen. I hope he could pull it off.


#7

You get Tomohisa, you get instant popularity. Yamapi fangirls come flocking.


#8

tomohisa could probably play a good miyata.

i know there was already an ashita no joe movie from the 80s but unfortunately i’ve never seen it so i can’t say how good it was.
